Urban College Of Boston

Urban College’s History
Founded as the Urban College Program by Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD) in 1967, Urban College of Boston (UCB) subsequently received its charter in 1993, its 501(c)(3) status in 1998, and full accreditation from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) – now the New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) – in 2001.

In 2017, UCB moved to its current campus, located on the first and second floors of the China Trade Center. In 2020, NECHE gave UCB approval to offer online courses to supplement its in-person course offerings during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. Throughout its history, UCB has been dedicated to supporting students in attaining their higher education aspirations and equipping graduates with the skills necessary to succeed in their chosen careers.
